I Am a Night Owl

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 70,043 People

    I don't really fully wake up

    until 6 in the evening. That's when I have energy. I lay awake while my family sleeps at night. I am my best me at night. I'm more creative when the sun goes down and the world stops for a moment.

    It's like the later I stay up,

    the less tired I feel sometimes.

    I thrive in the darkness.

    It is where I feel loved and safe. It's where I feel at home. The night is what I need to function on a daily basis.

    I am a night owl because I have basically

    always worked night shift. I've only had one day job in my life when I used to work at Little Voices for Jesus Daycare. I guess my mind is just used to being more active at night. I also like the stillness and quietness at night. I often take midnight walks to clear my head and...

    It's that kind of night

    where I'm tired, but I don't want to sleep! But I'm too tired to actually do anything. Sigh! This is almost every night for me. either this, or I just can't sleep cause I'm not tired lol. Never a normal night!

    I think it's just how i was born.

    I sleep the day away, and party all night through. Oh, and by party I mean sit in my bed, posting blogs, doing online shopping, watching netflix, and eating twice my body weight. Being a night owl is a privilege.

    Obviously. It's 2 am

    and I am wide awake. My "accidental" nap I had at 10 pm probably didn't help thingz much. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one up at this hour... The silence is nice, but trying to sleep during the noisy day stinks most days.

    For some reason, I spend all evening wasting

    time online, then I decide midnight is a good time to start cleaning the house. I should really just go to sleep

    Working the overnight shift means I am always up

    until morning. The earliest I ever go to bed is like 7am, but usually I don't get to sleep until closer to 9.

    I am very much a night owl.

    It's only after the sun goes down that I really feel alive, and I find it much harder to sleep at night than by day. There's just something about the night time that I find so quiet and serene. The only trouble is that my current job is mostly day shifts so I have to get by...

    I'm wide awake and I like talking with other

    night owls. I will admit I love talking about sexual things, but if there is anyone out there that wants to talk send me a message
